MLB “Field of Dreams” May 18, Frontier Field

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

Last September I introduced you to Johnny Perotti external link, the local baseball fan who won Pepsi’s MLB Field of Dreams contest. Well, actually we all won, because the winner’s hometown (that’s you Rochester) will get to play host to a mock MLB all star game.

First off, congrats to Johnny! Good work man. And congrats to Pepsi; you’ve got me blogging about your product which I don’t even drink as caffeine gives me killer headaches. But I digress.

Let’s get to the details of this baseball game which have finally been released. Tickets are now on sale…

Academy Building will get a Digital Makeover

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

The Academy Building will get a virtual facelift thanks to Scott Wolf, winner of The Great ROC Digital Makeover Contest! [Photo: Scott Wolf]
The Great ROC Digital Makeover Contest has come to a close. Scott Wolf’s photo of the Academy Building on Fitzhugh Street collected the most thumbs-up from our Facebook fans. That means Scott will receive a free print of Rochester’s Old City Hall and the Academy Building will get spruced up with a little Photoshop magic. Stay locked in to RochesterSubway.com for the unveiling in a few weeks.

And thanks to all of you who participated by posting your pics to Facebook.com/RocSubwayexternal link. All is not lost if you didn’t win. I just might get bored one day and give your photo a digital makeover anyway.

ROC Digital Makeover Contest… 1 Week to Go!

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Post Your Photos to
Facebook Before June 1.

The Great ROC Digital Makeover! Submit a photo of a Rochester scene to RocSubway on Facebook. If chosen, we'll unleash the power of Photoshop and give your scene a digital facelift. You'll also win a FREE 16x10 print of Old Rochester City Hall. [Flickr Photo: globochem3x1minus1]

Given Rochester’s status as the “Image City” and our surplus of neglected real estate, I figured photos of Rochester would be raining down on the RocSubway Facebook page by now.

Here’s an opportunity to see what your city, town, or neighborhood could look like if given a little time and attention. And all you have to do is post a snapshot and get your Facebook pals to “like” it. RocSubway and Photoshop will do the rest.

The Great ROC City Digital Makeover

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Now Accepting Your Photo
Submissions (via Facebook)

The Great ROC Digital Makeover! Submit a photo of a Rochester scene to RocSubway on Facebook. If chosen, we'll unleash the power of Photoshop and give your scene a digital facelift. You'll also win a FREE 16x10 print of Old Rochester City Hall. [Flickr Photo: globochem3x1minus1]

Former Mayor Robert Duffy once described Rochester as a gem that just needs to be dusted off. That may be over simplifying things just a bit, but I tend to agree. Look around this city and it’s easy to find great beauty in our natural landscape and our built environment – in the new, the old… and the rusted.

Have you ever caught yourself staring at an abandoned building or a grand old house that has seen better days? Is there a park or a public space that could use a few trees, flowers or a fountain? Maybe you squint your eyes to try and see what once was, or what could be? Whatever it is, take a snapshot.

Post a photo of your favorite Rochester eyesore to www.Facebook.com/RocSubway. You could win a 16x10 reprint of this vintage postcard depicting Rochester City Hall and the subway entrance (c.1930).Then head over to our Facebook pageexternal link and post your pic on our wallexternal link. If your photo gets the most “Likes” by midnight May 31, 2011 we’ll give it a Photoshop makeover and you’ll win a FREE 16″x10″ print of this Rochester City Hall vintage postcard. Pretty cool.
